The Iranian military warned that it will destroy the “Zionist entity” within eight minutes if the Ayatollah issues the command.
Ahmad Karimpour, a senior adviser of Iran’s elite Al Quds military unit, declared that the Revolutionary Guards will “raze the Zionist regime in less than eight minutes,” if Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei gives the order, Times of Israel reported on Sunday.
“If the Supreme Leader’s orders [are] to be executed, with the abilities and the equipment at our disposal, we will raze the Zionist regime in less than eight minutes,” Karimpour said Thursday, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.
Khamenei has repeatedly stated his goal to destroy the State of Israel, which he refers to as the “Zionist entity,” and the Islamic Republic has been increasing its military and nuclear capabilities notwithstanding the nuclear deal that it concluded with the Six Global Powers, led by the Obama administration, in the summer.
Earlier this month, not for the first time, Iran test-fired a high precision ballistic missile which it claimed can strike at Israel, Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported at the time.
The missile reportedly had a range of 2,000 kilometers and pinpoint accuracy of eight meters, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Ali Abdollahi had announced.
“Two weeks ago, we test-fired a missile with a range of 2000 kilometers and a margin of error of eight meters,” Abdollahi said in a scientific conference in Tehran a few days earlier.
Also this month, Ben Rhodes, US President Barack Obama’s policy adviser, boasted about how he and his team had manipulated the public with “misleading or false” information to garner support for last July’s nuclear deal with Iran.
On that note, it was revealed this past weekend that the Ploughshares Fund, a group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal, gave several hundreds of thousands of dollars to influential organizations, including J Street, and prominent news outlets in order to sell the Iran deal to the public.
